Many young people are brought up in the faith of their family, without ever really having the chance to choose for themselves. It's too often assumed that people have to 'opt-out' of a religion, rather than making a positive choice for themselves.
Alom's book tells how he made that choice and shows that you can make moral choices without a religious faith to guide you.
School is where we go to learn how to ask questions. It seemed to us that making the book available through school libraries is a good first step in educating young people so that they can choose to exercise their freedom of choice.
